ARCK – Autism Resource Center of Kokomo
Family Voices Indiana is a family-led organization that provides information, education, training, outreach, and peer support to families of children and youth with special health care needs and the professionals who serve them.
The mission of the IIDC is to work with communities to welcome, value and support the meaningful participation of people of all ages and abilities through research, education and service. The Institute collaborates with community agencies, schools, advocacy organizations, government, institutions of higher education and other community partners to effect improvements in quality of life.
IRCA staff conduct outreach training and consultations, engage in research, and develop and disseminate information on behalf of individuals across the autism spectrum, including autism, Asperger’s syndrome and other pervasive developmental disorders. Our efforts are focused on providing communities, organizations, agencies and families with the knowledge and skills to support children and adults in typical early intervention, school, community, work and home settings.
Since 1975, IN*SOURCE has provided services to Indiana families with infants, toddlers, children, youth and young adults with disabilities. Through the work and dedication of the board of directors, the staff and many volunteers, virtually all of whom are parents of persons with disabilities, IN*SOURCE, utilizing a proven parent-to-parent model, has provided quality assistance and support services, and educational resources to individuals and organizations that serve and support persons with disabilities.
Indiana First Steps’ goal is to provide a family-centered, comprehensive, coordinated, neighborhood-based system of services for families of infants and toddlers with disabilities.
Funded through the Indiana Department of Education, online training modules provide ideas and lesson plans for educators.
